Of ghostes and spirites, walking by night: and of straunge noyses, crackes, and sundrie forewarnings: which commonly happen before the death of men: great slaughters, and alterations of kingdoms.

Notes The text is very close to the edges of the book. On several pages, the text was already cut off in the original book. Many pages did not have the right page numbers. Page 38 was mislabeled as Page 34, Page 57 as Page 53, Page 69 as Page 61, and Page 208 as Page 107. Also, some pages appear out of order in the original book. This can be seen from Pages 193 to 200.
